+ - iPads on College Campuses? Maybe Next Year->

Submitted by Velcroman1
Velcroman1 (1667895) writes "Slashdotters have read extensively about the iPad pilot programs at colleges and universities: Australian schools are iPad crazy, we read yesterday, and thanks to the iPad's success, 2011 will be the year of the tablet. But on college campuses almost half a year after the iPad's launch, it's a whole different story — at least so far this year. FoxNews.com reports that high-profile schools like Duke and Stanford are far more cautious about the device than has previously been reported. "It definitely facilitates studying and recall because you don't get bogged down by all the paper," noted first-year Stanford med student Ryan Flynn. But it's still a work in progress. "The iPad isn't the best input device. Some people have gone back to paper and pencil.""
